Nova Scotians can now celebrate their Gaelic heritage or their connection to the language and culture by choosing the new Gaelic licence plate.
The plate features the symbol of Nova Scotia’s Gaels, the salmon of knowledge and the Gaelic name for the province, Alba Nuadh.
“This initiative supports the Gaelic language and culture in our communities and helps to foster strong and dynamic communities in Nova Scotia,” said Randy Delorey, Minister of Gaelic Affairs.
The licence plate is available at Access Nova Scotia and Registry of Motor Vehicles offices for passenger and light commercial vehicles.
A $50 donation will be collected with every purchase or renewal of the new plate and will go to the Gàidheil Air Adhart (Gaels Forward) Special Purpose Fund to support the language, culture and identity. The fund will be managed by the Gaelic Council through Gaelic Affairs.
“Comhairle na Gàidhlig/The Gaelic Council of Nova Scotia is very pleased to see this initiative go forward, as it provides a great opportunity for Nova Scotians to support language and cultural initiatives in the province,” said David Rankin, council president.
